How Does American Health Care Compare To Taiwan?
“Taiwan.” “Thailand?” “No, Taiwan.” Admittedly, I was in the same position when I applied for a teaching position in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. Since then, I’ve spent two years living here, and I talk Taiwan to anyone who will listen. The people? Delightful. The food? Phenomenal. The culture and history? Fascinating. I could easily run out of positive adjectives to describe this small island nation, which in the past two years has become my home. A sometimes stinky (tofu), smartphone-addicted, frighteningly small dog-obsessed home, but a home I love nonetheless. Health insuran...

What Causes Anemia?
Discussion One of the most common problems in pediatrics is anemia. It is defined as “a lower than normal value for the related measurements of hemoglobin, hematocrit, and number of red blood cells”, usually 2 standard deviations below the normal for age.

WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump signed a resolution on Thursday that will allow states to withhold Title X family planning funds from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.  The resolution overturns a Health and Human Services rule enacted by the Obama administration last year that prevents states from defunding Planned Parenthood or other health providers for any reason other than the provider’s lack of “ability to deliver services to program beneficiaries in an effective manner.” Now, states can withhold federal family planning grants from providers because they ...
